Abstract

Satisfying the edentulous patients with conventional complete denture has nowadays become a challenge to the prosthdontist as the patients have problems adapting to their denture especially in mandibular arch due to decreased retention, stability and difficulty in mastication. So a better treatment option for those patients is attachment retained implant supported overdenture. Overdenture helps in increasing the proprioception, retention, stability, comfort and confidence of the patient and decreasing the residual ridge resorption. Commonly used attachments used to retain implant supported overdenture are stud, bar, magnetic and telescopic attachment. This article presents a case report of implant supported overdenture for an edentulous patient with less interridge distance retained using locator attachment.

Keywords: Implant supported overdenture, Locator attachment, Less interridge distance.
